Consider the amphibian characters in these children's literature classics: Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Graham, Frog and Toad early reader series by Arnold Lobel, and Froggy picture book series by Jonathan London.
Face it. Frogs have delighted generations of young readers.
By the way, did you know that biologically speaking, toads are a subset of frogs?
They're all in the same family!
Award-winning illustrator Matthew Cordell's art perfectly mimics the exhuberant words. He manages to give not just frogs, but also tadpoles and even egg masses personality! He employs a muted palette of aquatic blues and greens, with just the right pop of yellow. The gatefolds are exactly, precisely right.
The underlying theme "just as sure as rivers flow, changes come to all who grow" gives the book universal appeal.
Destined to become a can't-miss sure-fire hit!
Daniel Miyares expressive frogs are spot on and immediately invite reader's engagement. Readers can relate to the dilemma of the pull of the surf verses the pull of a fascinating tale. The pictures brilliantly illustrate this concept with verve, while simultaneously allowing the brightly colored words to shine.
Dude. This book is epic!
